3D Decision Support System (3D DSS) for planning power lines

Organisation

Swissgrid & ETH Zurich

Country

Switzerland

Year

2018

Description

The 3D DSS computes the optimal corridor and path for a new transmission line based on the interests of different stakeholders. By doing this, different al- ternatives can easily be compared to identify the solution that best meets the requirements of a great number of stakeholders. Results are illustrated in 3D, which helps affected citizens to imagine how the future line will look like. In that way, transparency is fostered, which in turn, increases the acceptance and saves time and money.
